I was feeling nostalgic and wanted to make a mixtape like ones I used to listen to with friends in the wee hours, but using just new tracks from 2017.
We got an exciting mix compiled for us by Nicholas Langley, the man behind the British label Third Kind Records. Nick is an artist himself – he records material both under his own name and as Intensive / Nickname / hZ.
The label itself is relatively young, but already amassed a vast catalog of material by the likes of Peter Hoggarth, Leeaves, The Vitamin B12 and many others. Everyone is also highly advised to read 14 Things You Learn Running a Cassette Tape Record Label – roundup that features thoughts from TK, Tapehead Recordings and Prison Tapes.
